Courses and events

We offer a comprehensive programme of professional development training courses designed to keep bursars and members of the senior management team up-to-date with the key issues affecting independent schools. Most of these are held in the autumn and spring terms.

Themed one day events for our member schools include Safer Recruitment training, Health and Safety, HR, Finance, Estates Management, IT and Inspections.

Whilst many of our training courses are available to member schools only, certain courses may be available to non-members.  Please email us or phone Alma McKellar, Events Manager on 01256 373113 to see if you are eligible to attend.

Courses open to non-member schools

Brexit Briefing seminars
The ISBA is running a series of five Brexit Briefings in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Belfast and Newport, Wales.  Although tailored to the independent schools sector, we would be delighted to welcome bookings from schools not in membership of the ISBA.  Please see below for further information and booking.   These sessions are free of charge to delegates.

The next course will take place on Tuesday 14 January 2020  at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Basingstoke.  For further details and booking, please see below:
